Reporter: 2-YEAR-OLD

DIANA ALWAYS WANTED TO PLAY

OUTSIDE, BUT HER MOM WAS

AFRAID.

DIANA WAS BORN WITH CROSSED

EYES AND DOUBLE VISION.

SHE OFTEN LOST HER

BALANCE AND FELL BECAUSE OF

HER VISION.

ONCE WHEN I DID LET HER RUN

OUTSIDE, SHE FELL AND GOT

HURT.

I'M AFRAID IT WILL HAPPEN

AGAIN.

Reporter: DIANA'S MOM,

DALI, TOOK HER MOM TO AN EYE

CLINIC TO SEE WHAT COULD BE

DONE.

SURGERY WAS THE ONLY OPTION,

ACCORDING TO THE DOCTOR.

BUT IT WASN'T AN OPTION FOR

THE COUPLE, WHO STRUGGLED TO

MAKE ENDS MEET.

MY HUSBAND AND I HAD BEEN

TRYING TO SAVE MONEY FOR THE

SURGERY.

BUT WHAT HE EARNS FROM

FISHING IS JUST ENOUGH FOR

FOOD.

Reporter: AND THEN

HEAVY FLOODING AND STRONG

WINDS SWEPT THROUGH THEIR

PROVINCE IN THE PHILIPPINES,

DAMAGING THEIR FISHING

BOAT.

MY HUSBAND COULDN'T WORK

ANYMORE, BUT I DIDN'T LOSE

HOPE.

I KNEW GOD WOULD HELP US.

Reporter: WHEN CBN CAME

TO THEIR COMMUNITY, WE

PROVIDED NEW BOATS FOR THE

FISHERMEN WHO LOST THEM IN

THE TYPHOON, INCLUDING ONE

FOR DIANA'S DAD.

AND THEN CBN ARRANGED

SURGERY TO REPAIR HER

CROSSED EYES.

WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT CBN

PARTNERS WERE PAYING FOR THE

SURGERY AND MEDICAL

EXPENSES, I WAS SO THANKFUL

TO GOD FOR ANSWERING MY

PRAYERS.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THE DOCTORS REMOVED THE

BANDAGES FROM DIANA'S EYES,

SHE WAS READY TO RUN AND

PLAY OUTSIDE.

AND SHE'LL BE READY TO START

PRE-SCHOOL IN THE FALL.

MY DAUGHTER IS SO

BEAUTIFUL.

I'M SO HAPPY TO SEE HER

RUNNING WITH HER PLAYMATES.

THANK YOU, CBN.

YOU ARE GOD'S INSTRUMENT

THAT HELPED US.
